LADY LYNDY SORCERESS OF LIGHT




*LADY LYNDY SORCERESS OF LIGHT*
*WHEN LIGHTNING STRUCK ON ONE HALLOWEEN NIGHT*
*DEAR ABBY & ELVIRA BECAME ONE WITH THE LIGHT*
*HAUNTINGLY YOURS, LADY LYNDY*

Each of the Four Sacred Seasons: Spring Equinox, Summer Solstice, Autumnal Equinox & Winter Solstice, Dear Lady Lyndy will present for your viewing pleasure answers to your questions received through blogging comments &/or email.

This Sacred Season is the Autumnial Equinox & the Topic is:
HALLOWEEN OOAK ARTWORK

DEAR LADY LYNDY,
What is OOAK ARTWORK anyway?
JASON FROM AUGUSTA MAINE

DEAR JASON FROM AUGUSTA MAINE,
Original One Of A Kind Artwork.

****************************

DEAR LADY LYNDY,
I have a friend that recently bought an OOAK Halloween artwork only to find reproductions of the same piece by Department 56 at her local gift shop. What's up with that & how can she tell for sure if her artwork is truly OOAK?
MALIBU MARY

DEAR MALIBU MARY,
Your friend should have a COA Certificate Of Authenticity signed & dated by the Halloween artist as well as the artwork having been signed somewhere on the piece. Without some form of documentation, unless one knows the artist personally your friend may have a reproduction. Companies like Department 56, Hallmark, Disney, Franklin Mint, Ashton Drake, Danbury Mint, Bethany Lowe Designs, etc., have some of the best reproductions on the market today. In time even the reproductions will go up in value especially if there was a signed limited edition of what was produced.

****************************

DEAR LADY LYNDY,
My mother recently passed away leaving me her entire collection of wooden hand carved Halloween black cats. I have absolutely no documentation & yes the cats are all signed. Where can I find information on what this Halloween black cat collection might be worth?
CINDY HOUSTON TX

DEAR CINDY HOUSTON TX,
My soulful condolences to you & yours. Check on the Internet by using tag words like HALLOWEEN BLACK CAT WOOD CARVED. Also eBay & other auction sites may be selling the very same cats. So check those sites as well with the tag words & the name signed on the cat collection.

****************************

DEAR LADY LYNDY,
I'm a new artist wanting to sell my OOAK Halloween art work on the Internet. Would you recommend a website for my art work or just selling on an auction site like eBay?
HALLOWEEN MAN

DEAR HALLOWEEN MAN,
I would recommend both. During leaner times you can set up a website for selling your art work that did not sell on eBay as well as showcasing your new art work.

****************************

DEAR LADY LYNDY,
Is Halloween Original OOAK Artwork something that is just a fad or is it something that one should collect because it might go up in value?
MR. J. CHISUM

DEAR MR. J. CHISUM,
Halloween dates back to Celtic rituals thousands of years ago. Therefore Halloween OOAK Artwork will always be in vogue & not a fad. A vintage Victorian Louis Wain Black Cat OOAK Halloween Watercolor Painting recently sold on the auction block for $18,000.00. Today's Investment quality Halloween OOAK Artwork depending on expertise of the artist can garner hundreds of dollars, even thousands of dollars with a proven increase & faster return for the Halloween Art Collector.
